The Human Atlas of Europe: A continent united in diversity

Professor Danny Dorling, Dr Benjamin Hennig (Honorary Research Associate of the School) and Dr Dimitris Ballas (University of the Aegean) have published a new human atlas of Europe.

What does Brexit actually mean for the UK and what are the wider implications for Europe? Was the UK 'leave' vote actually symptomatic of broader issues within Europe such as population mobility and the rise of non-traditional parties? Written by leading international authors, this timely atlas explores Europe's society, culture, economy, politics and environment using state of the art mapping techniques.

With maps covering over 80 topics ranging from life expectancy, greenhouse gas emissions, GDP to Eurovision voting, The Human Atlas of Europe addresses fundamental questions around social cohesion and sustainable growth as Europe negotiates the UK's exit while continuing through the economic crisis.

This concise, accessible atlas is packed with exciting features, including:

  • short introductions to each topic
  • maps using the very latest data
  • infographics bringing this all to life
  • summaries of key information including league tables
  • core statistics on Europe

Taken as a whole, the atlas shows how geographical and state boundaries only tell a partial story and that we still live in a far more cohesive Europe than we realise. For more information, please see: The Human Atlas of Europe on the Policy Press website.
